How to Remove Foundation Stains

How to Remove Foundation Stains

If you’ve ever thrown on a bit of makeup running out the door, you may have spilled a bit of foundation before. Powder can be fairly simple to brush off or rinse out, but liquid foundation may be trickier. Here’s how to wash it out.

Step 1

Remove excess

Use a dull knife to gently scrape off any excess foundation lingering on your item.

Step 2

Treat stain

Dampen stain and rub with bar soap. Massage it between your fingers until it begins to lift. Rinse well and repeat as needed.
